  • Guns narrates his experience with Hachette and Westland for his two books, and recommends that authors must analyze who they choose as publisher.
  • His books have received good reviews, but that has not translated into sales at the levels he was expecting. (He was looking at five figure sales of his print books).

  • P R Ganapathy advises new authors to take professional help from editors to raise the quality of their writing and encourages aspiring authors to Read more and more to hone their skills.
